The Lycian Way is indeed a famous and remarkable long-distance trail known to outdoor enthusiasts worldwide. Stretching over 500 kilometers, it offers some of the most picturesque and breathtaking landscapes in the world. The trail begins in Hisarönü and extends all the way to Antalya, along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

Horseback riding on the Lycian Way is a unique opportunity to "travel in history" and experience the natural beauty and cultural richness of the region from a different perspective. As you explore this trail on horseback, you'll have the chance to immerse yourself in the lush forestry that characterizes the landscape. The trail takes you through various types of vegetation, from pine forests to strawberry trees and carob, and as you ascend to higher elevations, you'll encounter juniper and cedar trees. Along the way, you'll pass through gates that reveal stunning sea views, creating an unforgettable and immersive experience for nature and history enthusiasts alike.

Our family business was found in 1988 by Ercihan and its managed by himself and his wife Tülin. We care about our Horses well being and we consider them part of our family. If you care about the well being of horses, you are at the right place. Becoming one of the leading names about horseback riding in Turkey, Ercihan owes his success not only to his experience and passion about horses and riding but also his values; he never sees horses as just animals, but rather as companions for life. Over the last ten years, Ercihan has successfully trained horses that have become national champions in Endurance competitions. The Hippotherapy Project continues along with Nevşehir University. The family also continues to maintain several associated social responsibility projects. Ercihan has also organized horse riding expeditions all over the world in different terrains and conditions. As a believer of continuous learning and development, he loves to share his knowledge and experience with people. His unique approach gives even very experienced riders a new way of looking at the nature of the horse.
